I know Stihl says it is supposed to be used with the attachmnets other than the tiller, but i am the only one who runs my equipment, and I can take care of, and make sure that, it doesn't get abused, so I feel safe using the attachments on the 250.
Will the other attachments fit the 250? My dealer told me that they wouldn't fit- have an older 250 so maybe that has something to do with it
